Checking if those struts will hold up the hatch in cold weather?

I had my fuel pump, transmission oil, and engine oil changed. Turns out I have a very small radiator leak. Nice part is that I already have an almost new radiator, in my 944 project car. I'll probably upgrade it for the V8 engine so I can use the one on it right now for my 924S.

i reset my fuel pressure, banged it up a few PSI cuase i think im running lean on boost.

last night i was having a hell of time getting it above stock pressure without a small leak at the #2 injector seal, but today she seems to hold just fine. all the way past 40 psi. i wonder if she just needed to warm up to reseat the seals. air in the system pushing the seals open?

Put on a new clutch master cylinder to match the new slave. Then bled the system. put in a new fuel sender last week. Fixed the odo where it wasn't working. Mine turned out to be the pop metal gear was just spinning. Took it apart and scarred the inside the use some loctite quick metal on it an put it back together. So far so good...

Installed a new Supercharger to my 85.5 - Installed a Turbo Speedo and Tach. Then plugged a nylon tubing to the back of the turbo psi boost gauge and led it over to the passengers side. So when I want to go fast I have my girlfriend blow on the tubing.........Oops

Installed GreenWater's short shift linkage. Did not need to jack the car up, remove wheel, or anything. But the gravel in my backyard is quite uncomfortable.

I wished someone could post a step-by-step, pictorial, how-to DYI on that, because I have the same problem on my '84...:/

I kind of used a combination of this Pelican Technical Article: Porsche Dashboard Gauge Repair and Refurbishment and this http://www.odometergears.com/howto/Porsche_944_Odometer_Gear_Repair.pdf. The only difference was that the 944 has the plastic gear on the other side. I didn't take it completely apart, just far enough to slide the rod out of the odo dials to get the pop metal gear off. Then I just used a small micro screwdriver to basically scratch the inside of the gear. It is pressed on, so you have to deform it to make it hold. My loctite quick metal was unopened, but old so I'm not sure it helped or not, but it sounded like a good idea. Making pressed on gears tighter was what it is designed for. I did replace the plastic gear while I was there also. I should have taken some pictures, but didn't.

To get the gauge out on an early car, I popped the Multi gauge on the the left, only 1 multi wire connector on the back. You can get to the speedo cable easier from this side. Also popped the tach because the mpg gauge on the tach is connected to the speedo. I didn't take the steering wheel off, but I did loosen the 2 screws for the gauge trim.

Thank you, GregD! That sounds like a weekend project for me
Not this weekend, though; too hot and humid here in SE Texas (and I don't have an air-conditioned garage).
Actually, the first on my to-do list should be this annoying little big problem:/

I took a female friend for a drive out in the hills where I live to a little brewery with fantastic beer.

She loves my car. This is a good sign.

If a girl loves a 944 then she is a keeper!

924S, but yeah. She's also interested in my 944 LS1 project. She loves driving fast...just yesterday she told me she went over 160 in a V12 Mercedes. O.o

Apparently one of her cousins is rich and spent over half a million dollars on a custom 911 when he was in Germany. And my friend herself just put money down on a brand new Subaru BRZ.

Very interesting family she has...apparently her mother was in the record business and knew a lot of really famous singers...

Funny the connections random people have.

^ I like that pic. Car looks expectant. Bucolic setting.

We did the top end and found the 87 motor is worth saving. Today we tune the 924.
